Pedro Felipe Figueredo

Lawyer, landowner, poet and musician, he was born in 1818, in Bayamo. In the 1860s, he was active in the planning of the uprising against the Spanish which became known as the Ten Years' War. In 1867, he wrote La Bayamesa, which, today, is the national anthem of Cuba. He fought in the Ten Years' War as a general under the command of Carlos Manuel de Céspedes, but in 1870, was captured by the Spanish and was executed in Santiago de Cuba on August 17, of that year. This site is for Perucho and for all his descendants.

Abogado,  propietario de bienes y haciendas, poeta y músico excepcional,  nació en el año de 1818  en la heróica Ciudad de Bayamo. Durante la década de 1860 participó de manera activa en la planeación del levantamiento en contra de España, el cuál sería conocido como La Guerra de los Diez Años.  En 1867, escribió La Bayamesa, la cuál, hasta nuestros días, es el Himno Nacional de Cuba.  Durante La Guerra de los Diez Años,  Perucho peleó al lado de Carlos Manuel de Céspedes con el grado de General, pero en 1870 fue capturado por los Españoles y fue ejecutado en Santiago de Cuba el 17 de agosto de ese mismo año.  Este sitio es en honor de Perucho y  todos sus descendientes.
